meteorologist shiri spear joining us now with a look from the forecast. hi, shiri. >> shiri: i have to mention that the zip trip forecast will be dry and very muggy. but the friday showers and storms should hold off for the second half of the day. over the next couple of days through the midday, a lot of humidity that will be a pain in the neck. it is going super high here. pockets of heavy rain but a little tricky because it will be very hit or miss both today and friday, and we will get more widespread rain over the next week. extreme heat, something that could end up being very dangerous starting tomorrow going friday and saturday. we have heat and humidity rolling into play. today because of the cloud cover, i don't think that it is going to be as hot, but you are going to notice it getting very sticky. at the same time, we have a burst of rain that will be coming out of new york, weakening as it goes, it is going to shift into new england during the morning hours and i can time it out for you here at futurecast. first up, temperature-wise,
everybody is still dry. the spots to watch for the potential rain include southwestern new hampshire, southern vermont and western massachusetts. by noontime that threat is spreading into the boston area, but showers are going to be essentially falling apart, so i don't think the rain will be quite this widespread. we are going to have spotty showers from central into eastern massachusetts at noontime and temperatures will come close to 80 degrees. and for the afternoon, we make it into the low to mid-80s. we will so not necessarily overcast the entire afternoon but a lot more clouds than sun here for the second half of the day. and we have pop-up thunderstorms to monitor that will have locally heavy rain. very tough to decide in advance exactly where these are going to pop. sarah wroblewski is going to be keeping a close eye on this situation and timing them and tracking them for you as think do here. but 6 p.m., that drive home from work. although most of are you dry, we still have a couple of showers that you are going to

to heat indices between 100 and 105 degrees for boston and metro west. this can be a dangerous situation if you are not taken care of. take some cool breaks. stay well hydrated. do want everybody to be very careful not just on thursday but friday as we have another round of heat and humidity. tomorrow, could see the winds from south and southwest. and still bringing the tropical moisture into play, so even though i have a feeling thursday will be generally dry, we have tt shower given the amount of moisture in the air. friday morning, start out likely dry and mention our zip trip is pretty good for the afternoon. high around 93 degrees. you factor in the humidity. could feel like 100 again. 88 on saturday with storms around, developing, getting heavier as the day goes on. sunday into monday. the best bet for seeing heavier downpours. temperatures are going to take a little step back because of
